Through The Doors Of The Kindle Owners' Lending Library

BY Whitney Sullivan, NOVEMBER 18, 2011 | PERMALINK

Across the publishing industry, the newest addition to the Amazon family of apps and special programs is causing waves: the Kindle Owners' Lending Library. Earlier this month, Amazon announced that Kindle owners who are also Amazon Prime members will be able to “borrow” books from Amazon free of charge. This has much of the publishing community, from editors to publicists, authors to agents, up in arms. But what does a Kindle Owners' Lending Library membership actually entail and what does a reader think about it?

In terms of what is happening on the industry front, there’s no mistaking the fact that Amazon did a poor job of explaining the program. From not being clear about which books would be included in the Kindle Owners' Lending Library or how the books’ rightsholders would be compensated, there are questions all around. (In some cases books are included from publicists or rightsholders that turned down the opportunity to be included in the program in it’s planning stages a few months ago.) Now there’s talk of boycotting the program and there are rumblings that the entire Lending Library should be pulled from Amazon's site.

Los Angeles Times Publishes E-book Based On A Real Crime

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, NOVEMBER 15, 2011 | PERMALINK

The Los Angeles Times has published their first e-book, A Nightmare Made Real, based on staff writer Christopher Goffard’s popular series of articles about Louis Gonzalez III, a Las Vegas man accused of kidnapping, torturing, and sexually abusing the mother of his child.

Expanded from Goffard's original series of articles, the book provides an in depth look at the investigating detective and the defense teem, a more complete examination of the evidence from the case and also how the author, Goffard, was tipped off about the story. Offering an expansive survey of this gritty murder case, A Nightmare Made Real is ideal for any fan of true crime stories.

This book marks the first in the LA Times’ venture into digital publishing, and the company plans on releasing between eight and ten new titles digitally within the upcoming year. The books will range in length and type, from recipe anthologies to Pulitzer Prize-winning journalism.

The Wall Street Journal Begins Tracking E-Book Bestsellers

BY Whitney Sullivan, NOVEMBER 02, 2011 | PERMALINK

As of this week, the Wall Street Journal is now including the top ten fiction and non-fiction e-books on their weekly bestseller lists. By including e-books, the WSJ joins the New York Times and USA Today, which were already covering bestselling e-books. However, unlike these other two publications, the WSJ uses Nielsen BookScan for their information about what is hot in the e-format.

The WSJ’s addition to expanded list of selling stats premiered last Saturday, with the e-bestsellers for the week that ended on October 23. In a statement about this addition, Nielsen BookScan stated that they will be mining data from “all major e-book retailers” and the lists are set to include any books topping that list that sell for ninety-nine cents or higher. That is to say, Nielsen will now be collecting data about e-book sales from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple and Google.

Are Cheap E-book Prices Devaluing Authors' Work?

BY RT BOOK REVIEWS, OCTOBER 26, 2011 | PERMALINK

In a recent blog post at The Future of Publishing, Thad McIlroy asserts that Amazon poses a danger to the industry — not because of the Internet giant’s recent expansion into the publishing business (e.g. Amazon publishing mysteries, romance, and sci fi/fantasy/horror), but in the company's role as a bookseller. McIlroy argues that Amazon has been able to take over too much control of the bookselling market, which in turn is affecting the publishing industry in several serious ways, not the least of which is how Amazon is driving down the price of books.
